The rewards of daily Bible reading

“Area ministers encourage regular Bible reading” Elizabethton Star [Tennessee] January 3, 2011

“Daily Bible reading is a healthy habit for growing Christians,” said Dr. Joe Sorah, the pastor of Calvary Baptist Church, Elizabethton [Tennessee]. “God’s Word is our food for growth, our weapon for spiritual warfare, and our defense against sin. Consistent daily Bible reading anchors the believer onto the one foundation that does not shift or change. Comprehensive Bible reading gives a person God’s directions for how life ought to be lived.”. . .

Grace Baptist Church Pastor Chris Hughes also feels it is important to read the Bible regularly. “For many Christians, the Bible is the sole authority for faith and practice, or at least the primary one,” said Hughes. “That being the case, it is only common sense that, as much as possible, we familiarize ourselves with the Bible’s message and content. At the church I serve as pastor, the deacons and I have strongly encouraged our people to read the Bible through. Several have accepted the challenge, and have expressed great blessing from having done so.” 

Hughes noted that “one of the very best ways to do that, for those who may be intimidated by the sheer size of the Bible, is by reading one of the one-year Bibles.” He said these publications break the Bible up into small, daily, 15-to-20-minute units.
